the big news of the week. on tuesday night barack obama was once again elected president of the united states. but this year's party in chicago had nothing on 2008. back then more than a quarter million people crowded into grant park. mother nature even seemed sure of the outcome offering up an unbelievably warm 60 degree chicago night and the place was crowded with more black vips than the ethnic music festival. this year was more modest. a single podium draped with a touch of bunting, a far more typical cold, gray november day greeted the just about 10,000 supporters who found their way into chicago's unremarkable mckorm make place convention center. there was hugging, dancing, but the tears were more from relieve than inspired awe. be careful because if you decode this election night on the optics alone, you will believe them to be more different than they really are. despite a two-year halt in legislative accomplishments brought on by a recalcitrant republican party, an anemic economy, and a bruising campaign that lacked the historical fervor of the first, president obama nonethele

situation room". >>> president obama says his re-election proves that americans want action on the economy, not just politics as usual: just days after his victory, he's laying out a framework for compromise with the republicans to avoid $600 billion in automatic spending cuts and tax hikes in the next year. he says he's open to new ideas, but he warns the federal government can't cut its way to prosperity. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. and that means asking the wealthest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that's how we did it -- that's how we did it in the 1990s when bill clinton was president. that's how we can reduce the deficit while still making the investments we need to build a strong middle class and a strong economy. that's the only way we can still afford to train our workers or help our kids pay for college, or make sure that good jobs and clean energy or high-tech manufacturing don't end up in countries like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while r
. but despite the fact that president obama only received 39% of the white vote, he won the election 50% to 40%. he is about -- he has about 2.75 million more votes than governor romney. how did african-americans do? there are two aspects of the african-american voters want to talk about. it's not like there was truly a national campaign in 2012. if you lived in a swing state, you saw politics was all consuming. that was all that life was about, the 2012 election. on the other hand, if you did not live in a swing state, you probably were not entirely aware there was an election going on at all. in terms of the black vote, want to point out a couple of things. before i point out be increase in the black vote, want to mention one thing about gender. a major aspect of this election was about appeals to women, the phraseology was i believe "the war on women." there were issues having to do with rape, abortion, contraception, that were major elements of the campaign. there was a gender gap, and the gender gap was essential in terms of the outcome of the election. but i want to mention there was a r

across the country. not only did women help president obama win re-election, they also made history and big gains of their own. take new hampshire, for instance. it became the first state ever to elect women to all its top posts, the governor and the entire congressional delegation, all women. in wisconsin, voters elected tammy baldwin as the nation's first openly gay senator. and in hawaii, the state's first female senator and also the first asian-american woman elected to the senate. the new congress will also see the largest number of women ever, 20 in the senate and at least 77 in the house. and according to our exit polls, more women than men cast ballots this election. of those who voted for president, 53% were women, 47% were men. and those women voted overwhelmingly for president obama, 55% to 44%. but with all the gains for women, the senate is about to lose one woman who's been a fixture there for years. senator kay bailey hutchison did not seek re-election. she is retiring at the end of the year. she's been the republican senator from texas since 1993 when she replaced ll >> laura: in the impact segment tonight, in his first address citizens election day, president obama tried to calm concerns about the looming fiscal cliff. >> i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but, i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. on tuesday night we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. >> laura: i will interpret that for you, we are going to raise taxes. will the president deliver on this compromise? it's worth noting he did not allow questions from the media today despite it being common practice for presidents to do so in their first post election appearances. the white house says obama will hold a news conference next wednesday. joining me how from new york david callahan a senior fellow at a liberal think tank. okay, david, fiscal cliff, the president came out and he had that wallpaper of america behind him. it was very pretty scene. talked about compromise and i'm willing to take all ideas. and i felt like i was -- it was a flashback

scandal is rocking the obama administration three days after the election. cia david petraeus has been cheating on his wife. we have the details who may be the center of it all. her name is linda broadwell. she has spent a year in afghanistan with petraeus. here is a picture from their website. right now the cia is investigating a tip that she is the other woman. she is the woman named in that fbi tape. petraeus has not admitted an affair directly with her. but he said, yesterday afternoon, i went to the white house and asked the president to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position as d/cia. after being married for over 37 years, i showed extreme poorly judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. this afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation. author of "the secrets skreof t fbi," and suzanne kelly. let's start with suzanne kelly. this is a massive blow, really, to everybody in the white house, to general petraeus, to his wife and to the country
, do we know if the obama administration knew about this before the election? >> no, but wouldn't we all love to know the answer to that. that really is a burning question. just days after the election, something like this comes out. clearly something like this had been going on for a while. well, it actually meant he was having sex with her under the desk, but the fbi thought it might refer to corruption. in other words, doing something under the table. and that's how this investigation started. the fbi then went back and traced all of his e-mails and ascertained that he was having this affair with this woman, and of course that is a total violation of top secret security rules. you are not supposed to compromise yourself in any way where you could be blackmailed, especially the cia director. there is almost nobody in the government who knows as many secrets as he does, and people are routinely fired for putting themselves in this position when they have a top secret security clearance. what was even worse is that the fbi found that she broke up with him several months ago, and he c

christie is not exactly the guy you want to raise after this election, the bear hug for obama. some people might have called that a lot dance. -- a lap dance. that is extremely disturbing. [laughter] i do not want that image in my mind. he will be quarantined for a couple of months. i agree with mark. obama ran a brilliant campaign. he ran on nothing. he did not have a record. and he succeeded. he did extremely well. and he is right. i would say mitt romney is a good and decent man and who -- would have made a good president. he was not a good campaigner. i think he was weakened by the republican primaries, weakened by the 47%, and in the end he had really bad luck. a week before the election he was ahead in just about all the polls by a lot -- >> no. he was not. >> i think it was pre-empted in the last week. i am not sure he would have won. it would have been closer. >> i do not think he was ahead. but when we left here last week, mark and i looked at each other and we said, now we will see whether the vaunted ground game is really their. -- really there. the vaunted ground game turned ou
in this morning's "new york daily news." they write "president obama claimed an election mandate to make the rich pay more in taxes, saying it is the will of the american people, making his first public appearance since his victory. obama said he would open talks with republicans next week on how to prevent painful tax hikes and budget cuts set to automatically take place effective january 1." we want to find out from you, your thoughts on the president's statement claiming that the election gave him the mandate or gives him a mandate on taxing the rich, agree or disagree. we've divided the phones in a little bit of a different manner this morning. 202-585-3880 for those making over $250,000 a year. if you're making between $100,000 and $250,000 a year, your number is 202-585-3881. if you make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, your number is 202-585-3882. and if you're making under $50,000 a year, give us a call at 202-585-3883. we'll have those numbers up on the screen. basically $250,000, $100,000 to $250,000, $50,000 to $100,000, and under $50,000. social media, the addresses are twi
young turks." after the election president obama and mitt romney were crying but for different reasons. president obama got emotional when talking to his staff and how hard they had worked. let's watch that. >> obama: even before last night's results, i felt that the work that i had done in running for office had come full circle. because what you guys have done means that the work that i'm doing is important. and i'm really proud of that. i'm really proud of all of you. [applause] >> cenk: that's obviously staged. what a politician. i'm kidding. i'm kidding okay. then mitt romney was of course crying for over reasons. but what is amazing is that apparently they didn't see it coming. they really thought they were going to win. there's a report out from cbs. let me give you a quote. says, we went into the evening one of the top advisers said, confident that we had a good path of victory. i don't think there was one person who saw this coming. that's amazing! at best it was going to be an incredibly close victory for the romney campaign. how could no one anticipate that they might possib
to whrak the rich just like he always did. >> first of all, delighted that president obama won re-election, and we know how difficult it was given the fragile economy that we have here in america, but i believe he wants to accomplish two things. one, he wants to generate revenue, ad goo portion of which goes to pay down the debt, and he wants to grow the economy putting america back to work. you know, in california, the governor had 12.5% unemployment. taking office, down to 10.2%, a few more stop looking, so it's 11%, one out of eight california nans not works. you don't have people believing in the american dream if they don't have something to do. i think what the president wants to do is create growth, generate revenues for the people -- neil: i know what he wants to do. sorry, i was not clear. i know what he wants to do, but wondering whether what he proposed today was something that could be flexible? in other words, yes, he wants to raises taxes on the rich. that's going to happen, but maybe the olive branch he's offering back to th branch that boehner offered him is that it needn't
. one of the problems was that he spent all of this election, the only thing barack obama campaigned on, really, for a second term agenda was his vow to raise taxes on the wealthy. so, now we come back, the day after the election, the white house has already come out and said we're not negotiating on that principle at all. and boehner said we're not negotiating on that principle at all so we're going to find out in the next two weeks whether or not there's any room here or if ins a repeat of the debt limit talks in 2011. >> speaking of that, i don't think that boehner wants a repeat of that. there was a sense last year that he got out a little ahead of the caucus and obama was able to exploit that, negotiating within the negotiating. this time i think he's making sure they present a united front and he said he's open to hope he holds on the rates, i don't think we need marginal rates increase ins this economy. he wants to negotiate and cut a deal and i think that obama will be inclined to play ball. >> paul: this is the thing. if you look at second terms are notoriously not very effecti
right, back on "the young turks." after president obama was declared the winner of the election, we have some ugly moments, and one was on the campus of ole miss. >> 400 students took part and two arrests were made. one for public intoxication and the other for failure to comply with police orders. the university police department responded quickly returning students to resident halls following racial slurs. >> cenk: there was racial slurs and a burning of a poster. mitt romneymitt romney election day is tomorrow. obama will probably grab after the rest of us get off to work. and then a second one. we get it. the people who support obama don't work at all. because you know who they are. they did it again. they sent another one. obama grab the lead early until republicans get off the work. that became an e-card. once again you know what is really cleverly, thee cards sent around by right-wingers. then tweet number two. it's quitting time at work. romney supporters are about to flood the polls. wrong again bob. so that didn't work out for you. then finally obama fans can party all night. t
. but that's not what this election was about. barack obama made it about very little things, little small things like the planned parenthood funding and contraception, and he didn't make it about those two fundamental visions for america, and americans pointed out those fundamental differences and what type of freedom we're talking about. >> do you intend on running again? >> i don't intend to do anything right now other than spend a little time working to make sure that we don't walk away from the very principles that made our country great and that there is at least one party that's going to sound by those principles, so that's my objective right now. i have an organization called patriot voices which i hope people will join and stand with me in that fight, and i have a book that just came out called "american patriots" and i have a movie called "our sacred honor" all talking about american principles and how they apply to dealing with the problems today. i think that's what we have to get back to, and hopefully we can start that grassroots movement here to make sure that whoever our ca

obama won the election? what does it say about how ruthless people can be? >> not only are they ruthless, but they are not paying attention to the demand side of the economy. president obama is committed, as are most of those on the winning side of this election, to a growth economy. if you had an austerity economy based on cuts, that's when business should be worried because the demand side will continue to collapse. when you have an election won predominantly by those who favor growth, you should be ready to invest. we were cheered in our union by at&t's announcement to invest $5 billion extra each of the next three years to build broad band in rural america. we need employers to show that kind of leadership that we're ready to bring back the american dream. we're ready to create jobs and standby america's workers. >> all right. communication workers of america president larry cohen with us tonight. thank you. >>> there's a lot more coming up in the next half hour of "the ed show." stay with us. >>> coming up, professor michael eric dyson on the racial outbursts following the president
